Average American Joe

It sounds a little funny when you say those words – Average American – out loud, especially when there’s no such thing as “average” anymore.

Not according to Wikipedia, at least. According to them, there are no classifications out there anymore that make up greater than 30% of the population, meaning to say that there is no such thing as “average” to begin with.

But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find another Wiki article which tells us, basically, that almost all of us are very much the same; we’re people that have families and loved ones, and we’re doing what we can to take care of ourselves and the people around us.  OK… maybe not exactly in those words, but you get my meaning; 94.9% of us are middle class or below, we have bills to pay, and mouths to feed, and (God willing) jobs to get to so we can afford to do it all.

At no time is there really a chance to learn what is going on in America. Folks might “hear” something but they can’t really substantiate it one way or another.
